it was really not much of a town, either -- karnak, texas in december 1912 in a big house. one of the things i have found it in studying first ladies is how many married down into families lower them -- lower than them socially, economically, and sometimes, education. it made a big impression on me to drive past the house where the lady bird johnson was born. the big columns. it is near the louisiana border. you drive 300 miles west and you see that cabin where lyndon johnson was born. she came from a far wealthier background than she did. >> what is important to know about her childhood and what shaped her? >> i think the death of her mother. she was only five when her mother died in what i consider mysterious circumstances. she was a very lonely child, although she said she wasn't but how would she know what any other kind of childhood would be like? she had two older brothers, but they were sent away to boarding school. they were a good bit older. particularly the older one, tommy, she said she really never knew him. when he died in 1959 of pancreatic cancer, she said that she had cried har

mastectomy last year, she got this letter from blue cross blue shield of texas. i'm sure that robin would have loved your keep that you are health plan act in 2009, but alas, republicans weren't offering it back then. joining me now is norm ormstein. it has always been the case that legislators try to creates votes on issues, particularly for the opposing party that are going to be uncomfortable. but the entirety of the letting tiff agenda particularly right now is simply legislating via press release. >> absolutely, what was also the case, chris, is, before you put a bill out there, you would at least hold a couple of hearings on it to see what the consequences, intended and unintended, might be. but this is clearly a press release bill, and if you want to look at whether it's a good thing or a bad thing, all you need to know is the club endorsed it. this is not an attempt to find a constructive way to make sure that people can keep their health insurance and that we aren't going to screw up the entire insurance process by raising rates on folks along the way. that is just a talking poin
